  • 5 stars but

    Great podcast Arnie got a little weird calling a celebrity a trash human being on a recent episode, i mean let’s just focus on the movies and not cancel culture. Other than that 5 stars

    Why have an episode appear on a search if you are going to charge for it?

    I was just wondering if you guys could make all four home alone movie reviews available to people that are not subscribed? If you guys don’t do that I’m never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever again listen to you guys but if you guys make it so it is available for people that are not subscribed then I will subscribe to you guys if you do all 4 movies.

  • Paywall!

    Really enjoyable usually, really like the hosts, and probably my favourite podcast but lately it feels like every notable movie is behind the paywall. For free though, you can enjoy a Uwe Boll trilogy no one has ever heard of. Will stay subscribed, but waiting for a free straight-to-dvd review ain’t much to rave about. Haven’t yet paid for an episode but probably would if i could buy single episodes.
